Apple announced Wednesday that it will open an Apple Store location in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It’s the company’s first store in South America and will be a one-stop shop for anyone interested in purchasing Apple products. Apple emailed the news to a couple of Brazilian news outlets to confirm the upcoming grand opening. Here’s what one translated email had to say:
Apple has confirmed the opening of a store brand in Brazil. The first Apple Store will open in Brazil in Rio de Janeiro and will also be the company’s first own store in South America ”We look forward to the opening of the first Apple Store in Brazil, where we have long standing customers and hope to win many more each day.
